Kaleida Labs Inc, Motorola Inc’s Semiconductor Products Sector and Scientific-Atlanta Inc have been outlining their plans to use Malibu, a Kaleida-designed and Motorola-produced graphics and memory-controller chip, in a Scientific-Atlanta set-top terminal for delivering interactive and multimedia services to the home through broadband television networks. The aim is to provide a system optimised for the playback of multimedia content. The system uses the Kaleida ScriptX multimedia scripting language; it is optimised for use with PowerPC-based systems and supports display of high resolution text and enhanced two- and three-dimensional animation and graphics, and embraces MPEG standards by providing for direct connection of a wide range of video and audio decoders. Motorola will manufacture Malibu and make it available to Scientific-Atlanta and others; Scientific-Atlanta will implement Malibu in a home communications terminal; no dates.
